Looks allow users to create a reusable query and visualization (similar to a tile) which can be used on multiple dashboards. When the Look is updated, those updates will be reflected on all dashboards using the Look. Looks also allow API clients retrieve the raw results data from their projections.
How to Create a Look
In the SLOPE application, navigate to the Analyze module. From there, select a projection. Click the + button found on the Your Looks or Shared Looks sections of the left hand rail.
Provide a name for your Look and select which Explore you wish to use for your query and click Create. Click the Cog in the top right corner (see below) to edit the Look filters, visualization and fields and save.
In addition to creating Looks from scratch, Looks can also be created from existing Dashboard Tiles by clicking “Explore from Here” found under the context menu (three dots) and then clicking edit and saving as a Look.
How to Pull Results via the API using a Look
To pull projection results via the API, you first need to create the shared Look with the desired query and fields you wish to pull. After you create the look in the interface, copy the Look ID found in the top left corner of the Look. You will then pass the Look ID into the POST Reports/Looks endpoint.
